I don’t know whether this spectacularly negative segment on CNN is indicative of the coverage Romney is getting elsewhere both in early states and nationally on his lawn problem. Aside from making the “hypocrite on immigration” point they have Scott Reed making the broader “credibility gap” argument. The story in isolation is on one level small and silly (hey it’s a very big house and an even bigger lawn-could he even see who was raking the leaves?) but if you are inclined to believe or be worried about the conviction quotient this may be persuasive. If you love Romney, think he’s incredibly smart and has basically the right ideas on issues you care about, you probably just shrug.
